Synology DS418 PROS

designUsing a new Chassis, dual LAN ports and improved internal hardware - the DS418 NAS is certainly a NAS that will surprise users used to the lacklustre hardware available in the DS416 and DS414 NAS
featuresFeaturing such software application and support as 4K, 1080p, apple time machine, and almost every application from DSM 6.2 - This standard class NAS arrives with an excellent feature select.
performancePerforming well on many, many smaller file level transfers, the DS418 is a device that will provide a solid hardware and software position for you and your home or business
valueAt just £330, this si a great amount of hardware and software ability at this price mark. Definitely one to consider for surveillance and file level business needs
Synology DS418 CONS

designStill in a lower tier to the DS918+ or DS418PLAY - If you need raw, immediate power, maybe give this a miss
features Disappointing that PLEX has not yet released supported plex app.
performanceApplications that are heavy in graphic generation or visual editing will struggle a little on the DS418
valueIf your needs are more than 50% related to multimedia, Plex, DLNA and more will maybe need to skip this and go for the DS218+
